“[Garden State] has now played 30 times… the instrumental chorus to set up the vocal again is just insanely brilliant… The lyrics of the song are so brilliant, personal, unique… the local voices, the makeshift bed… I’m off to Glacier Ntl. Park for some climbing and hiking and Conor’s will be one of the 3 CDs I plan to bring along.” –Will Ackerman, Founder, Windham Hill Records
